Congress is again moving to solidify the “cyber incident response teams” at the Department of Homeland Security that work with the private sector in recovering from cyberattacks and other events that affect the nation’s digital infrastructure.
The teams were created by the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) as part of its mission to share information about threats and incidents, but a bipartisan group of House members wants to fully authorize them through legislation. Their proposal was approved Wednesday by the House Homeland Security Committee.
